ReCOLLAGES

ReCOLLAGES is a series of screen shots featuring open internet windows arranged online after some famous modern and postmodern collages and photomontages by such artists as Raoul Hausmann, Hannah Höch or Kurt Schwitters.

 

The work explores both the diversity of sources found on the Internet and the dematerialization of image in the digital era where boundaries between photography, painting and drawing become blurred and finally irrelevant. The series also reconsiders the validity of boundaries distinguishing amateur, art and professional productions; and correlates an increasingly easy access to pictures with the increase of legal restrictions of use.
